"From legendary science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson comes a vision of climate change unlike any ever imagined. Kim Stanley Robinson is one of contemporary science fiction's most acclaimed writers, and with this new novel, he once again turns his eye to themes of climate change, technology, politics, and the human behaviors that drive these forces. But his setting is not a desolate, post-apocalyptic world--rather, he imagines a more hopeful future, one where humanity has managed to overcome our challenges and thrive. It is a novel both immediate and impactful, perfect for his many fans and for readers who crave powerful and thought-provoking sci-fi stories"-- Provided by publisher.

More science than fiction, but still excellent! submitted by TeacherN on June 28, 2021, 9:59am This book imagines what might happen if we had an international organization called the Ministry for the Future, meant to protect future generations from the devistations of climate change. It helped me believe that the world can work together to make positive change, but it won't be easy!

Almost like a how-to manual submitted by severian on August 23, 2021, 7:12pm I'm a huge Robinson fan, and am basically on board with anything he writes at this point. This one is really fascinating, in that it handles climate change not in the distant future, but in the next 30 to 50 years or so. It's almost like he's giving us a how to manual of what kinds of adjustments we're going to make. I didn't connect so strongly with the characters in this one, but if you're interested in reading serious fiction about climate change (that doesn't just throw up its hands and get all apocalyptic and hopeless), you might like this.
